Ever had someone reply to an email using a fresh subject line and ended up with several different email conversations – all about the same thing, but at different stages of the conversation? Here is a great little hack you can use to get around this very common and inconvenient issue. Remember – make sure you keep private emails out of the thread history within a conversation. Share them with the Active Inbox community in the comments section below!At present, Gmail doesn't provide an option that lets you quickly combine two different labels into a single label.
One of my least favorite things is when they make the option I don’t like the default :).
Threading is when your email service sorts your messages so that all the replies and forwards are grouped together rather than just listing them in the order they arrived in your Inbox.
It’s also referred to as “conversations.” The screenshots below show an example of each type in Gmail.
That won't force your sender to keep things together, nor is it particularly automated, but for reading/archiving purposes it may fit your needs. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site (the association bonus does not count).
